Wednesday, October 12, 2016      3 comments

Last week I took my husband to University of Cincinnati Medical Center to have a MCS (motor cortex stimulator) implanted inside his head. He has suffered for over a year and a half with searing nerve pain on the upper side of his head that left ... Read more
Got over a bad spot and kept going!
Monday, September 26, 2016      2 comments

Had a couple of days where I was tired and depressed and felt overwhelmed by life and everything. My husband has postherpetic neuralgia and it flared up and just grounded him-it drives me nuts to see him hurting and not be able to fix it. I lose... Read more
Learning: not having a plan can wreck your plan!

Yesterday I was rushing around before work and realized I had nothing to pack for my lunch. No problem, I thought. I can get something at work. I work evenings so there is a short time window where you can get something from the grill-then ... Read more
Working on the water thing
Saturday, September 10, 2016      5 comments

I know that drinking water is good for you and helps weight loss. I have never done very well at it...I don't get thirsty much and I don't like running to the bathroom a lot, especially at work. Confession time-I don't know if I EVER drink 8 cup... Read more
My Ongoing Chocolate Addiction
Saturday, September 03, 2016      2 comments

Chocolate is my favorite antidepressant. I know it's loaded with sugar, fat and calories. But when the dark mist of depression/discouragement starts hanging over me I found out that chocolate would energize me and miraculously brighten my outl... Read more
A Breakthrough!

I was slumped over in front of my IPad reading SP this morning while I waited for the coffee to work its magic when I came across Elizabeth Lowry's article on workout clothes. I need clothes-badly-but since I gained weight I keep putting of... Read more
Rethinking my goals
Tuesday, November 11, 2014      0 comments

I guess the question I'm asking myself is-what is really bothering me about my life right now? What is my real motivation for being on Spark. I'm 53 now, getting older. I don't want to be one of those women who gain a little more and a lit... Read more
Strange things to be thankful for
Saturday, November 08, 2014      3 comments

Work has been so fast-paced that I barely had time to think. All day. I barely had time to go in the break room and eat, but that was ok. I had packed lunch and a healthy snack and water so in spite of the stress I was taking care of myself. Moo... Read more
Feeling the anxiety
Friday, November 07, 2014      0 comments

Had a paper due for school and it took ALL DAY LONG. I'm still fuming. It wasn't that deep or difficult a paper; I was just worked up and anxious and kept looking up one more resource, adding one more thing. School tears me up that way. I wan... Read more
Alright now-let's get serious
Thursday, November 06, 2014      1 comments

I have been taking it pretty easy for the last few days of my startup/return to Spark. Today I want to set some goals and see if I can manage to achieve them. I can't keep pampering myself along doing the easy stuff-I lose my self-respect. I a... Read more
Moving On
Wednesday, November 05, 2014      0 comments

Did not work out yesterday; I ended up getting up at 5 a.m. so I could get the Hub up for work (his first day back at work on new job-yay!) and then get animals taken care of and go vote before work. Polls close too early for me to vote after w... Read more
November 2-Day 2
Sunday, November 02, 2014      1 comments

Had a few twinges this morning, nothing major. Walked 2 miles with the Hub; it was a beautiful day with the autumn colors, but cold. Then got on Spark looking for some easy beginner workouts. I did the 7 minute upper body band workout with Co... Read more

An assessment of where I seem to be now...where I don't plan on staying! 1. My moods have not been good. I have had episodes of anxiety where I stay awake at night worrying about school assignments and things at work. I had something close... Read more

Here Goes
Monday, June 30, 2014      2 comments

I can't believe it has been MARCH since I last made an entry. 12 hour shifts at night will do that to you. My manager has said I can move to day shift in August. So that is one thing to look forward to. Day shift at my job is roughly twice... Read more
